So what is this confession all about and why on Earth is it coming 3 days early? I read a story about a restaurant outside of Pittsburgh that is banning kids under the age of 6. He claims that children under 6 cannot control their volume. And that his other patrons have complained so much that he really has no other choice. Well sorry dude, I'm not buying it. I think you just don't want kids in your restaurant. Here's a little more on the story if you missed it. Article
I am so outraged by the actions of the owner of this restaurant. (I refuse to promote the name) I wonder if he would say no one older that 70 is allowed to eat there? You know since they talk so loud because they can't hear. And other people are complaining, not him of course, the other people. I mean what else is he to do? Oh wait, that is against the law. You're only allowed to discriminate against the young in this country.
Look if you don't want kids in your restaurant here are some tips that will keep them out.
- Don't have a kids menu
- No crayons or activities while you wait for food
- No high chairs
- No booster seats
- Maybe some naked ladies walking around
- Or if you'd prefer, naked men
Part of me thinks this is the most brilliant marketing stunt in history. He has the whole country talking about his restaurant. And the other part thinks that he is a jerk and his restaurant should be boycotted by anyone that is offended by this. Call me a cynic, but I'm leaning with the latter.
If I lived there, I would gather up all the kids I know ages 6-8 feed them coffee and sugar and set them loose in his restaurant. (I'm laughing picturing it!)
